Initial treatment for advanced arthritis usually includes nonsurgical techniques such as medication, injections, physical therapy and using assistive devices. If these methods are unsuccessful, patients often turn to surgery to relieve their symptoms and resume a more active and enjoyable life .
Hip and knee replacements are very successful procedures. On average, replacements can last 15-20 years. Some patients enjoy full use of the prosthesis after 25 years or longer and can participate in a wide range of activities that they were previously unable to enjoy while suffering from arthritis.
